The following special medal awards were made by the trust-
ees in 1935 :
The George Robert White Medal of Honor to Professor
Oakes Ames of Boston and North Easton.
The Thomas Roland Medal to William N. Craig of Wey-
The Jackson Dawson Memorial Medal to M. H. Horvath of
The Society's Gold Medal from the William N. Craig Fund

Professor Oakes Ames
Professor Oakes Ames, to whom the George Robert White
Medal of Honor was awarded in 1935, belongs to a family long
known for its devotion to horticulture. He has given particular
attention to orchids and to economic botany. At one time, he
owned a large and important collection of orchids at his Sum-
mer home in North Easton, in which town he was born in 1874.
When he decided to give up his work with live orchids, he pre-
sented his collection to the New York Botanic Garden.
In late years, he has given much attention to the classifica-
tion of orchids and has described hundreds of new species. He
has built up one of the largest and strongest herbaria of
orchids in the world, now comprising over 42,000 sheets. In
addition, he has amassed a large scientific library and a strong
collection relating to economic botany.
Professor Ames has been connected for many years with
Harvard University, from which institution he was graduated
in 1898. He was instructor in botany for ten years, afterwards
assistant professor of botany and later full professor. He was
chairman of the Council of Botanical Collections in Harvard
University from 1926-1935. For many years he was supervisor
of the Arnold Arboretum, the Harvard Botanical garden in
Cuba and the Botanical Museum in Cambridge. He served as
Arnold professor of botany from 1932-1935 and in the latter

Professor Ames is a
Fellow of the Linnean
Society of London and of
the American Academy of
Arts and Sciences. He is
vice-president of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, vice-
president of the American Orchid Society and connected with
many other organizations, including the Association Inter-
nationale des Botanistes and the Washington Academy of
Science. He is also honorary president of the Canal Zone
He is starred in Cattell's Men of Science, designating that he
was awarded a position among the thousand leading scientific
men of the United States.
William N. Craig
William N. Craig, to whom the Thomas Koland medal was
awarded in 1935, is well and widely known in many branches
of horticulture. He has done much to disseminate horticultural
information through his lectures and writings and has made
many trips abroad. Mr. Craig was born in England of Scotch
parents and until he reached middle age was an estate super-

intendent, having been in charge of two large and important
places near Boston. Then he went into business for himself and
has developed a nursery in which special attention is given to
rare and choice perennials.
Mr. Craig is particularly well known for his work with lilies,
which he has studied widely in this and other countries. He
has to his credit a popular book on the cultivation of lilies.
Some years ago, he established a fund with the Massachusetts
Horticultural Society for arousing increased interest in lilies
through lectures and the awarding of special medals. The
award made in 1935 to Mr. Arthur Grove of London, England,
was from the William N. Craig Fund.
Mr. Craig has long been an active member of the Massachu-
setts Horticultural Society. He has also been connected for
many years with the Gardeners' and Florists' Club of Boston,
one of the oldest and strongest organizations of the kind in the
country. He was for many years its president and is now its
treasurer. He has been president of the National Association
of Gardeners. He is now president of both the New England
and Massachusetts Nurserymen's Associations and is connected
with most of the horticultural and florists' organizations in
New England. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural
Society and one of the foreign corresponding members of the
Lily Group of that body.
The medal awarded to him was established in honor of the
late Thomas Roland, who often has been spoken of as the coun-
try's greatest plantsman.
M. H. Horvath
M. H. Horvath of Mentor, Ohio, to whom the Jackson
Dawson Medal was awarded in 1935, is a modest man, and his
work has never been widely exploited. Among expert horticul-
turists, however, he is known as a man who has been very suc-
cessful in the breeding of roses, barberries and other woody
plants. He has done especially good work in the hybridization
of Rosa setigera and is responsible for Berheris mentorensis
as well as other barberries. The Jackson Dawson medal was
26 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
established in honor of the late Jackson Dawson, who was for
many years superintendent of the Arnold Arboretum.
Arthur Grove of London, England, was awarded the
Society's Gold Medal from the William N. Craig Fund in 1935.
He is known throughout the world for his work on lilies, and
although he has been contributing articles in this field to mag-
azines for many years and in 1911 published a book entitled
"Lilies," so modest a man is he that he has never had his photo-
graph published and there is no account of his work in print.
Mr. Grove is undoubtedly the world's highest authority on
lilies and is now engaged in the preparation of a monograph
of the genus. He is a Fellow of the Linnean Society and in 1924
the Royal Horticultural Society conferred upon him the Vic-
toria Medal of Honour, the Society's highest award. In 1933
the Society again recognized his work on lilies by the award of
a gold Veitch Memorial Medal.
"When the Lily Group of the Royal Horticultural Society
was formed in 1933, Mr. Grove was one of the men most active
in its organization and has contributed very largely to its
success. This group is doing much to increase the knowledge
of and the interest in lilies.
John C. Brodhead
In 1935, the trustees voted a silver medal to Mr. John C.
Brodhead, assistant superintendent of the Boston schools, for
his enterprise and success in developing school garden work
and similar undertakings. Mr. Brodhead was founder of the
school garden movement as it is now known in Boston, this
being in 1916. It was Mr. Brodhead, too, who established the
agricultural course at the Jamaica Plain High School in 1918.
This course has now become so important that several teachers
are employed, with Mr. Thomas P. Dooley at the head. Mr.
Brodhead has long been advisor of the Boston School Commit-
tee on matters pertaining to such work. He has done much to
arouse interest in gardening among young people throughout
the city and has constantly encouraged school garden efforts.

MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Richard J. Hay den
Richard J. Hayden, superintendent of Boston's Park Sys-
tem, has expressed himself along educational lines in many
ways and is a through-going horticulturist. He received a
broad education in horticulture in Ireland. Later, he became
foreman in the greenhouse on the estate of the late Mrs. Jack
Gardner in Brookline and at that time began exhibiting at
Horticultural Hall. He spent a year in landscape construction
and then went into the employ of the City of Boston, where
his ability and energy have long been recognized.
Since coming to this country, he has studied widely at vari-
ous schools and colleges and has written for various magazines
and papers. It was as a result of one of his articles that the
work of renovating the soil on Boston Common was started.
His versatility is shown by the fact that he invented and had

made at the Franklin Park workshop the first reversible snow-
plow made in America. Last Summer, much attention was at-
tracted to a large group of tropical economic plants which Mr.
Hayden developed in the Boston Public Garden for the benefit
of the city school children. During the world war, he did much
work in connection with the playstead gardens.
He is a highly trained horticulturist and has used his knowl-
edge consistently for the benefit of the people of Boston.
Charles M. Lamprey
Charles M. Lamprey is a unique figure among Boston school
masters. Teaching is the breath of life to him and his methods
have won him a wide reputation. For years, he has devoted his
extra time to Nature study and to developing a love of Nature
among his pupils. His school is a work shop, in which aquari-
ums and terrariums have a prominent place. All through the
year, bulb growing, garden work and bird study receive his
interest. He has had an active part in several of the exhibitions
of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

Garden Awards in 1935
The Committee on Gardens worked under peculiarly hard
conditions in 1935, as we had had a second very hard Winter,
and an unseasonable frost in late March, so that many of the
flower and fruit buds were killed.
Many new gardens have been made in the last year in Mas-
sachusetts and so many people have written offering their
gardens for inspection that the committee decided to establish
a "zoning-plan" by which we could visit all the worth-while
gardens when they are at their best in the short Spring weeks.
Last Summer we visited the northeastern part of the state.
We felt we were very lucky in visiting Andover and North
Andover last Spring, for we found there some lovely gardens
and a really beautiful place belonging to Mr. Russell Tyson.
He has the most lovely and interesting series of fountains I
have ever seen, and the allees which radiate from the house are
in beautiful proportion and exceedingly well planted. We sug-
gested the Hunnewell medal for this place.
Mrs. G. M. Lane's place, Manchester, Mass. is too well known
to need a description, but it was voted unanimously to award
it the Society's gold medal. A silver medal was awarded to
Mrs. John G. Coolidge's rose garden at North Andover, and
the willow trees at her place were admired enthusiastically.
A silver medal was also awarded to Mrs. Charles F. Ayer of
Hamilton for the swimming pool and its surroundings.
One of the prettiest small gardens that we found belongs to
Mr. and Mrs. W. Endicott Dexter of Prides Crossing. It is a
charming spot and was awarded a blue ribbon garden
A blue ribbon was also awarded to Mrs. Charles Norton's
garden at Annisquam. This is unusually interesting and has a
perfect herb garden and tiny herb room also.
For the great originality and great charm which promises a
lovely future for the garden, Mrs. Ferris Greenslet of Ipswich
received a blue ribbon certificate.
Miss Margaret Cummings of Topsfield was also awarded a
blue ribbon certificate for the variety of her gardens and their
Mrs. Charles F. Pease also received a certificate for her gar-
den in Melrose. She has shown great ingenuity in planting to
advantage a limited space.

Children's Gardens Exhibitions*
The Exhibition of the Products of Children's Gardens held
annually in August had its beginning in 1888 when a com-
mittee was appointed to foster window gardening as a project.
It was known as the Window Gardening Project Committee
and their job was to encourage window boxes.
The next year, herbariums were encouraged in earnest to
stimulate the growing of wild flowers in the gardens. In 1890
the Massachusetts Horticultural Society sent Henry L. Clapp to
Europe to study school gardening. As a result of his trip, Mr.
Clapp, then Master of the George Putnam School in Roxbury,
started a wild flower garden in the rear of his school. This was
a flower garden for nine or ten years and in 1900 plots were
lined out and vegetables grown. About 1893 the Committee on
Window Gardening was changed to the Committee on School
Gardens and Children's Herbariums. That year about 13,000
plants were distributed among the young people. They were to
care for them, thus creating an interest in young people for
horticulture. Exhibits of the plants were held in various parts
of the city and at one of these small exhibits in Roxbury 200
plants were shown.
The growing of wild flowers and the making of herbariums
were continued at the same time and on November 27 and 28,
1896, the children's herbariums filled the lower exhibition hall ;
there being about 1,700 dried specimens shown. While this
work was growing, wild plants in school gardens continued to
create more interest and flourished rapidly. As previously
stated, school gardens continued to grow only flowers until
1900 when vegetables were introduced.
The year 1904 marks the beginning of the home garden
movement. The child was to send in a letter in the Fall de-
scribing cultural methods, etc., together with a picture of the
garden. No longer was he allowed to grow only native or eco-
nomic plants. There were only about ten entries the first year
and the committee name was again changed to Committee on
School Gardens and Native Plants.
The year 1905 began showing the results of the hard work of
the committee the previous year. While the Massachusetts
Horticultural Society only offered five prizes there were 20
entries. The total spent on children's work by the Society that
*Based on the History of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.
children's gardens exhibitions 41
year was $150. Again the name of the committee interested in
children's horticultural work was changed to the name it now
holds, viz: Committee on Children's Gardens Exhibitions.
The year 1906 showed another increase in entries in the
children's department, there being eleven school garden en-
tries and 259 home garden entries. The old system of visiting
the child's garden at home still prevailed.
The year 1907 marks the year of the first children's exhibi-
tion as such. Two were held — one in July and another in
September. The latter was overwhelmed with entries and the
awarding of prizes became a real task. The lecture hall was
filled with exhibits and packed with several hundred boys and
girls. Some of the products shown were as good as any seen
at the regular exhibitions and the enthusiasm certainly was
greater. For all these results the Massachusetts Horticultural
Society spent $147, and the old herbarium exhibits by the
children a few years before were very successfully superseded.
The children's show of September, 1908, had 73 prizes for
school gardens and in 1912 such progress had been made that
the premium list showed about 168 prizes. By 1916 there were
250 entries in the individual vegetable classes and the quality
was so high, expert judges found difficulty in making awards.
With the impetus of the war, school and home gardening
spread by leaps and bounds. This, of course, reacted on the
annual children's show which that year, 1918, filled the three
exhibition halls with vegetables. The show of 1919 showed 42
classes for vegetables alone. At the show, silver and bronze
medals were given for the best gardens and a total of 800
entries made up the show. By this time the total prize money
donated by the Society had increased to $250. This was in-
creased in 1920 to $300.
At the present time the children's show continues to fill the
three exhibition halls with vegetables and flowers. The past
few years have brought well over 1,000 entries. The tomato
class alone has over 70 entries. Quality continues to improve
especially with the older children, and judges often find it
more difficult to make awards in this show than in those made
up of adult exhibitors.
An added incentive, especially for the older, more expe-
rienced junior gardeners are the large bronze medals donated

in the Boston Public Schools and Mr. Thomas P. Dooley, head

Thus, in 48 years we have seen what appeared a minor
project like window box gardening grow into herbarium shows,
and then outgrow them into a real exhibition of flowers and
vegetables with upwards of one thousand junior exhibitors,
the adult exhibitors of tomorrow.

Fruit Books in the Library
The literature of pomology is distinctly modern, for al-
though fruit growing was discussed in the very earliest books
on farming, there were no separate books on the subject until
the sixteenth century. Even then, the first works were generally
repetitions of established customs. It is interesting to watch
the growth of the scientific spirit in them — at first a hardy soul
here and there questioning and watching, then a small group
of followers catching the idea, finally the full vigorous tide of
The first approach to the subject was, quite naturally, a
practical one. "The best way for planting, grafting, and to
make any ground good, for a rich orchard" was William
Lawson's happy phrasing. Classification and really scientific
description appeg^r only near the end of the seventeen hun-
dreds. Systematic pomologies and special monographs have
been the distinctive contribution of modern times.
This comparatively young subject has already a very long
list of great contributors of fine books. To do even the great-
est of them justice is beyond the power of this small space, and
the list that follows may be taken only as a suggestion of what
has been accomplished. It is based on an exhibit in the library,
in which the physical limits of the show cases contended with a
desire to make the display as representative as possible.
1570 Maison Rustique, par Charles Estienne et Jean Libault.

lish by Richard Surflet and combined with extracts from
other authors, making it representative of the classic point

a chapter.) His fame as a gardener spread to other coun-
tries, and his book, translated into English and abridged, had
a long and influential career.

Benevolent Fraternity Fruit and
On June 1, 1925, the trustees of the Massachusetts Horticul-
tural Society invited the Benevolent Fraternity Fruit and
Flower Mission to establish headquarters at Horticultural
Hall, thus affording- an opportunity to enlarge the work which
had its origin in the Hollis Street Church in 1869 and had been
carried on continuously during the Summer months.
In expressing our grateful appreciation at the expiration of
the eleventh year, especially for the continued friendly inter-
est of the Secretary of the Horticultural Society, we realize
that this co-operation has enabled the Fruit and Flower
Mission not only to have a room where contributions may be
left on any weekday morning during the entire year but the
permanent headquarters has made it possible to keep in con-
stant touch with the organized hamper work which enlists the
volunteer service of many friends ; those who pack the hampers
with generous donations from their gardens and place them on
early trains ; the railroad men who cheerfully and courteously
assist in transporting the hampers free of charge and the
helpers in the several neighborhood centres.
In the Summer of 1927, 267 hampers were received from 20
towns and two garden clubs were represented. In 1935, 32
towns sent 674 hampers, boxes and packages, and 23 garden
The trimming and filling of the Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas baskets in our basement room offered opportunities for
many old and new friends to have a part in this appealing side
of our work. Never have so many large baskets been distributed
and all were well filled with "goodies." The need is increas-
ingly acute among many "white collar" recipients.
Tickets for concerts, the Merry Movies and the Spring
Flower Show were purchased by friends and sent to the Fruit
and Flower Mission for distribution to lonely people who need
bright spots in their drab existence and are very appreciative
of our expressions of friendliness.

OFFICERS AND COMMITTEES
PRESENTED AT THE
ANNUAL MEETING MAY 4, 1936
WITH A LIST OF MEMBERS
ADMITTED IN 1935
Annual Meeting, 1936
The annual meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural
Society was held in Horticultural Hall at 3 p.m. on Monday,
May 4, being preceded by a lecture by the Secretary in which
he reviewed the activities of the previous year, illustrating his
talk with lantern slides.
The President, Mr. Edwin S. Webster, presided and an-
nounced that Mr. Arno H. Nehrling, Miss Brenda Newton and
Miss Dorothy Somes had been appointed tellers. Following
the reading of the call for the meeting and the minutes of the
previous meeting by the Secretary, the President made his
address. The Secretary, the Treasurer and the chairman of the
various committees then made their reports, all of which are
The President's Address
I was somewhat startled when the Secretary told me that
our Society now has over 8,600 members. It seemed to me that
I had never realized the great responsibility which lies upon
the shoulders of the officers and trustees in their relation to
this great number of persons, all looking to us for guidance
and advice. The present membership is much greater than that
of any other similar organization in all the world with one ex-
ception. Our Society has twice as many members as any other
horticultural society in America, as it has more than the total
membership of the New York and the Pennsylvania Horticul-
tural Societies combined.
Moreover, our sphere of influence is much wider than these
figures might indicate. We touch the lives of many additional
thousands through our flower shows and particularly the
great Spring Show. If we live up to the obligations imposed
upon us by our charter and our by-laws, we must seek to be of
genuine help to these persons in solving their personal garden
problems, as well as by adding to their pleasure and
The scope of the Society's work does not stop even here, how-
ever. Through our publications, and especially our magazine,
the Society's prestige is carried to every part of the world. It
is the only organization of the kind which has ever ventured to
sponsor a national magazine in open competition with privately
owned periodicals. In saying this, however, much credit is due
72 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the Horticultural
Society of New York for the co-operation which they have
given us in building up and sustaining the magazine.
With all these facts in mind, it is not surprising that a sense
of responsibility should be felt by the officers, the trustees and
the staff. We must inevitably be faced with the question, ''Can
we give the best possible account of our stewardship ?" Perhaps
it will remain for the next generation to give a definite answer
to that question, but I can say in all sincerity that we are try-
ing to direct the Society in ways that shall prove to be of the
greatest good to the greatest number. I hope the individual
members of the Society realize that it is their privilege to offer
suggestions and criticisms if, in their opinion, they are needed.
The trustees will welcome either or both.
The study of the Society's history, covering over a century,
shows that there have been times of recurrent prosperity and
depression. Prosperity has come when those in charge of the
Society's affairs have tried to serve the common interests, as,
indeed, they are obliged to do by the terms under which the
Society's existence is made possible. Times of depression have
come when opportunities for public service have been over-
looked and the government has fallen into the hands of self-
seeking individuals. There have been such times and we
rejoice in the fact that a broad-gauged policy is now being
pursued — one which brings into active participation in the
Society's affairs the amateur, the commercial man and the
professional gardener, all working together in harmony and
with the same end in view.
There is a wide-spread belief — and it is entertained by some
of our members — that the Society is very wealthy. Unfortu-
nately, this is not true. Its assets are large, to be sure, but so
are its liabilities. It could make money if it let its funds accu-
mulate and made no effort to carry out the fundamental
purposes for which it was organized, but then its membership
would dwindle and its influence decay. Its present activities
more than exhaust its normal revenues. These revenues, of
course, have fallen off in recent years, both in the matter of
rentals and more particularly in the income from investments.
Even now, securities paying liberal premiums are continually
being called in to be replaced by others having a much smaller
ANNUAL MEETING, 1936 73
Such activities as those very important ones carried on by
the Library and the Summer exhibitions, including the Exhi-
bition of the Products of Children's Gardens — the largest of
the kind in America — ^entail heavy expenditures and produce
no income. To suspend these activities, however, would be to
seriously damage the Society's prestige and its standing in the
community. It was to maintain them, indeed, that the plan of
holding a Spring flower show on a large scale every year was
introduced. It was the purpose of those who initiated this
project to conduct a Spring show on a business basis with the
expectation of producing sufficient revenue to carry on the
Summer exhibitions, with something left over for other
branches of the Society's work, such as the giving of lectures
and the publication of bulletins and pamphlets. Yearly deficits
were common before this plan was adopted. They have been
met with only occasionally since that time. It is a fair state-
ment for members to make when asked about the Spring Show
that its earnings are used definitely for staging free shows
throughout the Summer months and that without such earn-
ings, these shows would have to be abandoned.
Since the business of the Society has assumed its present
large proportions, the trustees have felt the necessity of eco-
nomical and careful management. A budget committee has
been appointed which makes a careful study of all the Society's
activities before allotting such sums as may be needed to carry
them out. All receipts and expenditures are carefully audited,
and the books are open to any member who may care to see
I find that this address is proceeding along very different
lines than those which I expected it to take when I began pre-
paring it. I have been impressed more and more, however, with
the feeling that those in charge of an organization such as this,
with its many ramifications and its far-flung contacts, should
realize very seriously that their duties are more than perfunc-
tory and that their decisions must be made thoughtfully
and with consideration for all the horticultural branches
The Secretary in his report will give you the details of the
Society's work the past year. Some of them he has given you
already in his lecture. You have seen the prize gardens and
74 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
many of the past year's exhibits on the screen. You have been
able to compare them with gardens and exhibits in other
places. The chairmen of the various committees will have
some pertinent comments to make on the work which these
committees have been doing. The Treasurer will give you a
report which is not as satisfactory as we had hoped that it
would be, due to the flood, which seriously interfered with the
attendance at the Spring Show and consequently reduced its
Before I close, I wish to pay tribute to the loyalty and
ability of our staff, the members of which have worked steadily
and enthusiastically for the advancement of the Society's in-
terests throughout the year. I must pay tribute also to the
various committees which have been entrusted with many im-
portant and far-reaching projects. These men and women
have spent many hours in careful consideration of the
Society's problems, which they have met with their best judg-
ment. The Society is greatly indebted to them and also to the
officers of the garden clubs, who have co-operated heartily in
the matter of the Spring Show and in other ways. There are
certain individual members of the Society, too, whose interest
in our work has been shown by gifts and by additions to our
membership. We are grateful to them, and we look forward to
continued close association with them in future years.
Edwin S. Webster, President.
The Secretary's Report
With a membership of 8,600, many changes are bound to
occur every year. Within the twelve months, 1,247 new mem-
bers have been added. In the same period, the names of 735
members have been removed for one reason or another. Some
of the losses, unfortunately, have been occasioned by death.
Among the members who passed away was Jere A. Downs, who
had been a trustee of the Society for several years, and who is
deeply mourned by the other members of the board. Another
loss was that of Harold Hill Blossom, a member of the Commit-
tee on Exhibitions, whose genius had been relied upon in a
large measure for the development of the Spring shows. The
76 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Society has been fortunate in obtaining the services of his
associate, Veasey Peirce.
The steady growth of the Society and the constant extension
of its activities are matters for congratulation, but they have
brought about increased responsibilities and added expense.
To send out a post card now to each member of the Society
costs $86 in postage. If a sealed letter is sent to each member,
the postage amounts to over $200. It is for this reason that the
members have been requested to read each issue of Horticul-
ture and Gardening in New England carefully. Many activi-
ties of interest to members are announced in the Society's
publications and will be overlooked unless watched for. It is es-
pecially important to read the announcements in the advertis-
ing box on the inside back cover of Horticulture.
At the end of the last financial year, December 31, 1935, the
Society found itself wdth a substantial balance, due to the suc-
cess of the Spring and Fall shows and because of systematic
economies practiced throughout the year. By vote of the
trustees, a sum of $3,000 was added to the Show Insurance
Fund, $1,000 was set aside to establish a fund for recatalogu-
ing the library, the Secretary was authorized to purchase a
new piano, and the Committee on Building, with Mr. Joseph
E. Chandler as chairman, was instructed to proceed with the
renovation of Exhibition Hall. This hall was newly painted
and given a new decorative scheme. Many minor repairs were
made at the same time, and the ceiling of the loggia was deco-
rated. The Committee on Building also made several improve-
ments on the upper floor of the building, thus providing
adequate quarters for the Boston Mycological Club ; and fold-
ing doors were placed on the mezzanine floor in such a manner
as to provide a new and excellent committee room.
The addition to the exhibition fund raised that fund to a
total of $38,000. This amount probably will have to be drawn
upon in the current year because of the fact that the profits
of this year's Spring Flower Show failed by about $10,000 to
meet the Budget Committee's estimate. The Budget Committee
had based this estimate on the returns of previous years and
could not, of course, anticipate the handicaps placed upon this
show by the great Spring floods. Because of the depleted
treasury, it will be necessary to exercise continued economies
ANNUAL MEETING, 1936 77
throughout the present season, although the Society does not
intend to seriously reduce the extent of its activities.
An innovation has been tried the past year in the holding of
monthly meetings at which lectures are given and at which
limited exhibits of plants and flowers are made. These monthly
meetings have been directed by a joint committee of the
Massachusetts Horticultural Society and the Gardeners' and
Florists' Club of Boston, with Robert H. Roland as chairman.
They were instituted largely through the efforts of William
N. Craig, who was a member of the committee representing the
Gardeners' and Florists' Club. This club, by the way, is one of
the oldest, largest and most influential organizations of the
kind in the country. It has long held its meetings in Horticul-
tural Hall. At its annual banquet, held in February, Arno H.
Nehrling, exhibition manager of the Massachusetts Horticul-
tural Society, acted as toastmaster.
Mr. Nehrling has also directed two study courses the past
season held in Horticultural Hall by the Boston Branch of the
National Association of Gardeners. It may be noted in passing
that John S. Doig, a member of the Society's Exhibition Com-
mittee, is now the president of the National Association of
Gardeners. Raymond E. Smith of Andover is president of the
local branch and has been active in carrying on the current
Last Autumn, the Society conducted a class in botany for
amateurs under the direction of Mr. and Mrs. Hollis Webster,
which Avas largely attended and very successful. Mr. and Mrs.
Webster also conducted a Spring course which was held
The Society has co-operated in the work of establishing
backyard gardens in the Ward 8 section and thus improved
sanitary conditions in that part of the city, which is close by.
The Secretary was authorized in the Spring to spend up to $25
for loam to be used in these gardens, and Mrs. Robert G. Stone,
wife of one of the trustees, gave $75 to be used as prizes, these
prizes being awarded at a meeting held in one of the school
houses late in the season. Various contests have been held by
students in this building and Mechanics Building in the course
of the year and awards made from the Society's funds. The
78 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Secretary had the privilege of presenting some of the medals
at a meeting at the Jamaica Plain High School.
The trustees have held three meetings since the Annual
Meeting in 1935. At the meeting on May 6, the Society in-
structed the Secretary to write to the Secretary of Agriculture
supporting the position of the secretary in proposing to do
away with the present quarantine on narcissi. At this meeting,
it was also voted to award medals to three men who have been
particularly active in educational work along horticultural
lines: John C. Brodhead, assistant superintendent of the
Boston schools; Charles M. Lamprey, director of the Martin
School in Roxbury ; and Richard J. Hayden, superintendent of
the Boston Park System. It was voted to again make the hall
available for rummage sales at the discretion of the Secretary,
but the contents of attics and storerooms seem to have been
pretty well depleted, and there have been no rummage sale
At a meeting on October 4, Mrs. Bayard Thayer, as chair-
man of the Committee on Gardens, recommended awards as
follows, all the recommendations being adapted :
The H. H. Hunnewell Gold Medal to the estate of Mr. Russell
Tyson of North Andover.
The Society's Gold Medal to Mrs. Gardiner M. Lane's estate in
A silver medal to Mrs. John G. Coolidge for her rose garden in
A silver medal to Mrs. Charles F. Ayer for her swimming pool
and its surroundings in Hamilton.
A blue ribbon garden certificate to Mrs. W. Endicott Dexter
for her garden in Prides Crossing.
A blue ribbon garden certificate to Mrs. Charles Norton for
her garden in Annisquam.
A blue ribbon garden certificate to Mrs. Ferris Greenslet for
her garden in Ipswich.
A blue ribbon garden certificate to Miss Margaret Cummings
for her garden in Topsfield.
A garden certificate to Mrs. Charles F. Pease for her garden
At this meeting the Committee on Special Medals also sub-
mitted its report, recommending that the George Robert White
80 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Medal of Honor be awarded to Professor Oakes Ames of
Boston and North Easton ; that the Thomas Roland Medal be
awarded to William N. Craig of Weymouth ; that the Jackson
Dawson Medal be awarded to M. H. Horvath of Mentor, Ohio ;
that the Society's gold medal from the William N. Craig Fund
be awarded to Arthur Grove of London, England, for his work
At the January meeting, announcement was made that the
Albert C. Burrage Gold Vase Committee had voted to recom-
mend the award of the vase to Jere A. Downs for the plant of
the cymbidium Beatrice shown by him at the Spring Exhibition
in 1935. The report was accepted, and it was voted to send the
vase to Miss Elizabeth S. Downs, her brother having passed
away since the meeting of the committee. The trustees at this
meeting voted to award a gold medal to Clifford Brown of
Wellesley as the Albert C. Burrage Porch Prize for 1935.
There are a few other matters which may be of interest. Late
last year, the Secretary's assistant, Paul Frese, resigned and
has joined the editorial staff of Better Homes and Gardens in
DesMoines, Iowa. He has been succeeded by Miss Hazel
Keener, formerly at the Ohio State University, Columbus,
Ohio. Miss Keener has been assigned to the room formerly
occupied by the Boston Mycological Club, giving Air. Nehrling,
the show manager, an office to himself, which was much to be
desired. This office has been completely refurnished. Miss
Phyllis Allen, the Secretary's secretary, also resigned several
months ago and is now a happy bride. Miss Dorothy Somes was
promoted to her position.
The Benevolent Fraternity Fruit and P^lower Mission under
the direction of Mrs. Lewis A. Elliott has been especially active
the past year in its office in the basement. Twenty-three garden
clubs and garden groups have aided in this work, which has
been carried on at Horticultural Hall now for eleven years.
The Secretary wishes to express his appreciation of the co-
operation given him by the trustees, the officers of the Society
and by the members of his staff. Without this co-operation,
little could be accomplished.
Edward I. Farrington, Secretary.

Report of the Committee on the Library
During 1935 the reading room maintained its popularity.
Telephone calls increased in number, and questions were
varied. The number of books borrowed, however, fell off
slightly ; 5,362 volumes were taken out, as against 5,513 a year
Two series of classes brought visitors to the room, and gave
direction to the reading of the students enrolled. One of these
was the course in systematic botany offered by our own Society.
The other was the series given by the National Association of
Gardeners. For the latter, the reading room was open every
During 1935, 491 volumes were added to the library. The
botany course led the committee to strengthen that part of the
book collection, and to purchase a set of large-scale drawings
and diagrams illustrating cultivated genera. These drawings,
first used in the course and then displayed in our show cases,
were unusually effective and popular. Several volumes were
presented to the library. For these gifts and for the friendly
interest which prompted them, we thank the donors most
heartily. A full list in the Year Book will record their generos-
In January 1936 the Board of Trustees, at the request of
the Library Committee, set aside $1,000 toward the cost of re-
classifying and recataloguing the books. The present system
was installed in 1906. The past 30 years have seen many ad-
vances in horticulture, in library technique, and in the use of
the library, so that while the book collection itself has kept up
with the times, it cannot be used with full effectiveness. Work
cannot begin at once, but it is most satisfying to be able to look
forward to it.
One of the questions most often asked is where plants or
seeds may be bought. Last year we received nearly 800 cata-
logues, from 21 countries, and we are constantly watching for
new names. Good specialists in unusual lines, are of the great-
est interest to us, for such material is hard to locate through
the usual trade channels. Old catalogues, too, are valuable —
the older the better. Probably few people know that our oldest
catalogue was issued in 1776, that we have five earlier than
1800, and that 33 countries are represented in our collection.
ANNUAL MEETING, 1936 93
We should be glad to receive either old or new catalogues of
We would emphasize the fact that the library is for the use
of all members of the Society, wherever they may live, and
that its service is not limited to sending out specified books. It
has many ways of providing even quite detailed information
and the more its resources are tested the better they become.
It does not promise the complete answer to every question^ —
sometimes the answer is not yet known — but it does promise
its best efforts, and it looks forward to the time when every
member of the Society will be upon its active list.
Nathaniel T. Kidder, ChaArman.
Report of the Committee on Lectures and Publications
Some ten or twelve years ago, interest in horticulture
seemed to be at a low ebb and difficulty was found in obtaining
a satisfactory attendance at the lectures held in this building.
For that reason, regular lecture courses were abandoned. Now,
with renewed interest in ail phases of gardening activity, lec-
tures are again being held, with an attendance which is highly
gratifying. So far, however, the committee has elected to ob-
tain the services of such well-known speakers as may happen
to be in this section from time to time rather than endeavoring
to establish a definite course.
Dr. Ivan H. Crowell of Boston lectured on "The Diseases of
Trees" in September, Professor Ralph W. Curtis of Cornell
University lectured on "Trees for Decorative Purposes" in
October and W. E. Marshall of New York City lectured on
"Lilies" in November, this lecture being paid for from the
William N. Craig Fund. One of the outstanding features of
the Society's work was a course in gardening practice given by
Mrs. Julia A. Latimer of Mamaroneck, N. Y., eight lectures in
all. This course was largely attended and proved extremely
An interesting experiment was made in March when the
hall was open to the Dahlia Society of New England for a
lecture on Sunday afternoon. The experiment was a success,
for the attendance was large, two-thirds of those present
being men. This is an unusually large percentage of men, but,
94 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
of course, the dahlia is usually considered to be particularly a
Another experiment was made at the Daffodil Show in
1936, when a lecture was held in the evening. The attendance
was also large at this lecture, the speaker being Mrs. F. Stuart
Foote of Grand Rapids, Mich., who discussed daffodils, illus-
trating her remarks with colored slides.
Although the monthly meetings are under the direction of a
special committee, most of the lectures have to be passed on by
this committee, inasmuch as the lecturers are usually paid
from the Society's lecture appropriation.
This Spring, a class in landscape gardening is being con-
ducted by the educational department of the state, with the
co-operation of this Society, the lectures being given by Mr.
Robert S. Sturtevant in one of the Society's halls.
The circulation of Horticulture has continued to increase,
although this magazine, like all similar publications, has had
many difficulties to contend with in recent years. Mr. James
Geehan continues as advertising manager and has helped to in-
crease the revenue. He has made many trips in the interest of
The supplement Gardening in New England has proved use-
ful in providing a means by which to bring to the attention of
gardeners in New England matters which cannot be consid-
ered of national importance. It is hoped that members of the
Society will read this supplement carefully in order that they
may be informed about coming events of all kinds, particularly
flower shows and garden club meetings. A special supplement
was issued for the Spring Flower Show with a large edition.
No new bulletins have been issued, but some of the others
have been reprinted. There continues to be a particularly
heavy demand for Mrs. Helen Noyes Webster's bulletin on
WiNTHROP L. Carter, Chairman.
ANNUAL MEETING, 1936 95
Report of the Exhibition Committee
It is customary each year, at the annual meeting of the
Society, for the Exhibition Committee to make a report rela-
tive to the flower shows of the Society held during the year,
and to then make such observations as it sees fit on the future
operations of shows and other things connected therewith.
Last June, on the 20th and 21st of the month, to be exact, a
free show was held in co-operation with the American Peony
Society. During the two days 7,229 people came to the show,
and as compared with similar exhibitions held in years pre-
vious, it proved to be exceptionally fine as a peony show, but
there were almost no roses and very few vegetables, and dis-
plays of fruits were limited to a few baskets of strawberries of
rather exceptional quality.
It is to be genuinely regretted that our June Show does not
bring out more exhibits of roses and early-blooming perennials.
At last year's June Show lilies of exceptional quality were
shown. The Exhibition Committee- wishes that there was some
way to impress our members with the fact that we wish to
build up future June shows by having many more rose entries
than in the past, and by studying the rose classes in last year's
schedule it will be seen that many small rose growers could
make entries if they cared to. This annual June Show is an
admirable one for small exhibitors, and it is greatly to be
hoped that in reading this report, when it is published in the
Year Book, our members will take these words to heart and
help us in the future to make our rose classes and our June
Show of more general interest.
An experiment was made this past year in connection with
the mid-Summer and late-Summer exhibitions featuring
gladioli and dahlias respectively, both free shows. The Mid-
Summer Exhibition was run in co-operation with the New
England Gladiolus Society, and on the two days of August 17
and 18, 6,515 people inspected the exhibits. The Late-Summer
Exhibition, held September 14 and 15, and run in co-operation
with the New England Dahlia Society, drew approximately
6,000 people.. The experiment tried at these two shows was the
offering of first and second prize ribbons in the miscellaneous
classes in which lilies, annuals and perennials, and fruits and
vegetables were included. As an experiment, this plan perhaps
96 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
was worth trying, but the Exhibition Committee and the Prize
Committee jointly are opposed to carrying on this idea of
ribbon prizes in the future, and this coming year our schedules
will be written, offering cash prizes as in the past.
On October 15, 16 and 17, the Society ran a large free show.
This was called the Fruit and Vegetable Exhibition, and we
had at this show an attendance of 8,781 people. The greatest in-
terest centered around some surprisingly fine exhibits of hardy
chrysanthemums and hardy asters, and favorable comment
should also be made on the fruit and vegetable displays, some
of which were very extensive.
On November 20, 21 and 22, the Autumn Flower Show drew
an attendance of 11,239 people. Twenty-five cents admission
was charged for this show, and tickets were distributed in ad-
vance to our entire membership. This was an experiment which
drew forth a certain amount of criticism, but nevertheless it
seems logical that in a Society such as this, where members
receive so much and are asked to do so little, that it is not over-
burdening our membership to ask them to help build up at-
tendance at our shows by some form of individual effort, which
they should regard as a privilege, and not as a burden. Such
a Society as this can only grow if it is backed up by its mem-
bership in a 100 per cent co-operative spirit. This last show of
the year 1935 showed a slight profit. The outstanding exhibits
were of course chrysanthemums, but we also had some splendid
orchid displays and some fine specimens in the flowering plant
classes. The dates of November 20, 21 and 22 are considered
too late by your Exhibition Committee, and chrysanthemum
shows will be held in the future earlier in the month of
Throughout the year, the outlook for the Annual Spring
Flower Show, held this year on March 23 to March 29 inclu-
sive, was exceedingly bright. The week before the show
opened the most serious floods ever experienced in the New
England states at one time made it appear as if the show, as
planned, would not be staged. To our exhibitors, the greatest
credit is due. Obstacles were overcome by certain ones of our
exhibitors that seemed impossible to meet. The show, when it
opened, was complete as planned, not a single exhibitor
failed to complete the major exhibits. The flood conditions
however did seriously affect the gate receipts, and although
ANNUAL MEETING, 1936 97
the show will go down in history as one of our best Spring
flower shows, it is a regrettable fact that the financial figures
were disappointing as compared with previous years.
A judge's dinner was held on the opening night of this
year's Spring Flower Show. This was very successful. The
show was held open one extra day, Sunday, March 29, for the
benefit of flood relief, but the day turned out to be the first
really warm Spring day of the year and the attendance was
therefore most disappointing. We were able to make a gift of
some real value to the Red Cross, nevertheless, and certain
ones of the trade exhibitors gave a portion of their day's re-
ceipts in addition to half of the gate receipts donated by the
In 1934 this Society, for the first time in its history, held an
informal and unscheduled Daffodil Show, and it aroused suffi-
cient interest among our members to warrant repetition.
It was impossible to run this show in 1935 because our halls
were rented for the exact dates suitable for a Daffodil exhibi-
tion, but early in this past year it was decided to develop the
idea of a specialized bulb show for 1936, and although no sched-
ule for it was published, and no prize money was offered, cer-
tain key exhibitors were contacted, and the dates were set for
April 30 and May 1. Several of our trustees generously offered
some sweepstake prizes, and it was gratifying to report that
this second Spring bulb show, known as the Daffodil and Tulip
Show, was most worth-w^hile.
On the afternoon of the first day, it was opened exclusively
to members of the Society and their guests. In the evening a
lecture was given by Mrs. F. Stuart Foote of Grand Rapids,
Mich., and on the second day of the show, the public seemed to
throughly enjoy the beautifully staged exhibits in which sev-
eral hundred varieties of daffodils and tulips were shown.
During the past year, the Rule Book was completely revised,
the work being done by the Exhibition Committee, with the
co-operation of the Prize Committee, and this book was used
for the first time at our Spring Show, some of the revisions be-
ing of a minor nature and some sections showing considerable
change from the former Rule Book. In bringing this report of
the activities of the Exhibition Committee to a close, I wish to
thank our President, Mr. Webster, on behalf of the committee,
for his interest in our work and his frequent attendance at our
98 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
meetings when he invariably gave us valuable advice and
assistance in the making of our exhibition plans. To Mr.
Farrington, our Secretary, I also offer the thanks of the Exhi-
bition Committee for the time and thought which he has given
to those of our problems that we took to him, and last but not
least, the Exhibition Committee, with its chairman speaking
loudest of all, records the work of Mr. Arno H. Nehrling, our
peerless show manager. It is largely due to his untiring efforts
that our shows have been so successful since he came to this
Harold S. Ross, Chairman.
Report of the Committee on Prizes
Each year the Committee on Prizes scans the list of medals
which it has given during the previous twelve months in order
to see if improvement in methods of awarding them may be
made and their value increased. We strive to make these
awards more desirable to exhibitors, and toward this end our
exhibition medals are now given by the Prize Committee to
exhibits of exceptional merit.
The selection of judges and their proper grouping is un-
doubtedly the foundation of successful judging. To achieve
satisfactory results, it seems necessary in each group of three
judges, to have important factors, such as culture, design and
tradition and general artistic feeling, represented each by an
expert. We advise a judge to allow himself to be influenced by
the expert of the particular subject under consideration.
The Prize Committee feels that it has been very fortunate
this year in securing such competent men and women to judge
its shows, and we wish to express our appreciation of their
work, the quality of which is constantly improving.
The point system which the Society uses as a basis of its
judging has often been under fire, and many times justly so.
However, we feel it is not the fault of the system but the mis-
application of it due many times to the lack of proper balance
in the drawing up of the scale of points. We have tried to cor-
rect these faults by making several changes in our latest Rule
Book whereby the more important factors of a well-rounded
exhibit are given greater emphasis.
Our opinion is that an important value of the point system
ANNUAL MEETING, 1936 99
lies in the influence which a judge may exert in the final ver-
dict when there is a disagreement among them. The principle
of the point system provides concrete evidence as to how the
judges arrived at their decision, the results of which may be
shown the exhibitor. This is one of the principal reasons why
it is so necessary for the Society to hold to such a system, for
the problems of awarding medals and plate are much more
serious than the bestowing of ribbons.
In accordance with our decision last year to have the
judges' comments made public by exposing them on exhibits,
we wish to report that the reaction of the exhibitors has been
favorable, and we believe this custom will have a tendency to
